Venom 2 Reveals Confusing Spider-Man Easter Egg

Venom: Let There Be Carnage was released earlier this year, and it gave Tony Hardy's Venom another adventure in the books. This time, Brock and his symbiotic friend Venom get to face off against Woody Harrelson's Carnage—hence the title.

The end of the film is what really got people talking. After the credits rolled, audiences were treated to a mind-blowing scene of Eddie Brock and Venom being transported over into the MCU, with the symbiote getting his (possible?) first glimpse of Tom Holland's Peter Parker.

That one scene alone increased hype and curiosity about Sony's expanded universe of films and what they could mean for the future of Spider-Man. The film set to follow No Way Home is Morbius, which will introduce Jared Leto's Michael Morbius, another anti-hero for the studio to play with.

Now, Sony released a new feature for Let There Be Carnage which puts the spot lights on some of the Easter eggs in the film, including one that references both the webhead and bloodsucker.

In a new featurette for Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Sony revealed a closer look at the walls of Cletus' cell while pointing out all of its Easter eggs.

Sony honed into one in particular, a confusing part of the mural: a Spider on a web and what seems to be a bat. This could be alluding to Carnage's connection to Spider-Man and the upcoming Morbius film.

Sony pointed the egg out itself by making a custom graphic for the occasion, as seen above.

The video can be seen in its entirety below:

So what do these Easter eggs mean for the future? Probably nothing at all, besides Sony simply flaunting its ownership of the two characters.

After all, it would seem that not even Sony itself knows what it wants to do when it comes to who is in what respective universe. The upcoming Morbius film has shown conflicting signs of its relation to Marvel's other established cinematic universes, leaving fans confused about how the Jared Leto-led story may impact the superhero sphere.

That said, Michael Morbius' solo outing being in the MCU is extremely unlikely given Sony's move with Hardy at the end of Let There Be Carnage. Either way, fans will simply have to wait it out to figure out what connection the likes of Venom and Morbius have to Tom Holland's Spider-Man.

Spider-Man: No Way Home releases later this year on December 17.
